I follow a variety of reporters that are covering the 2016 Presidential Election and also current events happening around the world that affect the United States. With the recent bombing in Manhattan, many of the reporters are tweeting about how the two presidential candidates are handling the situation differently. This was a major opportunity for Clinton and Trump to show how they would handle a moment of crisis if they were elected.
I follow reporters that follow either Trump and Clinton, and this shows me both sides of the election in detail. Recently they have been also covering Clinton’s absence from her campaign trail due to being sick and nearly fainting at the September 11 memorial.
Many of the news organizations I follow seem to use graphics and videos to make their tweets stand out. CNN Politics posts videos periodically with their tweets on the election.
With the first Presidential Debate being tonight, many reporters I follow are tweeting about the upcoming event and involving pictures as well. Politico is one of the accounts that I follow that tweets a lot, focusing on Hillary Clinton’s campaign in this tweet.
